I don't personally care for Doug Ford; I find him uninteresting, inarticulate, unintelligent, and I don't see any sign of a principled or reliable moral compass in him. Yet he leaves me wondering, as do many politicians, if this is the best we have to put forward from our millions of citizens. Perhaps our best are uninterested, and that's a shame.
The CBC, CTV, Global News, CNN, BBC and their ilk have all done for journalism what Roman Polanski has done for the idea of celebrity daycare or what William Bruce Jenner has done for womanhood. The takeaway here is to avoid the mainstream media completely, because they are making journalism corrupt. If your news source has ads or receives government funding, then you are likely being told flat-out lies or are getting a version of events that is so watered down and distorted in order to be inoffensive and uncontroversial that it contains nothing of real value.
Trudeau's government is increasing the already heavily bloated funding to levels that are completely obscene. Hundreds of millions in tax dollars are being funnelled to an organization that refuses to provide quality fact-based journalism. The CBC has become nothing more than a tool for the Trudeau Liberals to pump dangerous and divisive identity politics into our culture. We are being forced to fund the destruction of our own society
Anyone who follows politics closely is well aware of the deep divisions between the Far Left and the Far Right. And while our cherished public broadcaster is thorough and aggressive in rooting out bizarre and extreme behaviour on the Right, as it should be, we hear next to nothing from them on the Far Left. I say next to nothing when in actuality I see nothing at all from them on the Far Left; although, I am holding out hope that I am mistaken and that someone will come along and correct me.
